Poster: Reem Raiyshi


"In this photo showing a poster that was released Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2004, by the militant wing of the Palestinian Hamas Islamic group in the Gaza Strip, female suicide bomber Reem Raiyshi, left, is seen holding a rifle along with pictures of other militants. Raiyshi, a mother of two, blew herself up at the major border crossing point between Israel and the Gaza Strip, on Jan. 14, 2004, killing herself and four Israelis. The text reads in Arabic : "Al Qassam Brigades (referring to the Hamas military wing's name) pronounce to god Reem Raiyshi, the first woman martyr". The word martyr is used by Palestinians to refer to people killed during the fighting with Israel." (AP Photo)
